The OpenEarth philosophy related to data involves that important data sets, rather than working on a project-by-project basis, should be collected and be made available in a project-superceding manner:

  • important datasets should be stored and made available easily via webbased interfaces
  • data transformation scripts should be subjected to version control
  • data products should include all necessary metadata

To achieve this international standards are embraced like:

The data collection procedure and the relation between those standards is explained in the OpenEarth Data Standards document, developed in the framework of the EU FP7 Project MICORE.
